Tom Brady is losing another key pal.
Chris Hogan, who played alongside Brady for two Super Bowl wins in his three seasons with the Patriots, signed a one-year deal with the Panthers on Friday.
Hogan, 30, had been an unrestricted free agent. Terms of the deal were not immediately released, per the AP.
The former college lacrosse player out of New Jersey played in all 16 regular season games for New England last season and caught 35 passes for 352 yards and three touchdowns. He added eight receptions for 58 yards in three postseason games.
Before joining up with Brady’s bunch in 2016, Hogan spent three seasons with the Bills.
Overall, Hogan has 33 starts in six NFL seasons. He’ll help fill the void in Carolina after the Panthers lost free agent Devin Funchess to the Colts.
Already this offseason Brady has lost two key weapons. Rob Gronkowski announced his retirement after the Patriots beat the Rams for the franchise’s six Super Bowl title.
